Clubs

Some of the most important lessons that students will learn occur outside the classroom. This opportunity is another venue in which they can uncover their personal gifts and develop their aptitude for leadership. Several clubs compete on a regional and state level: for example, Youth & Government, Model UN, Junior Classical League, Science Olympiad, etc.

Middle and Upper Schools offer the following clubs:

  • Chess Club
  • Environmental Club
  • Fellowship of Christian Athletes
  • Fencing Club
  • Global Connectors Club
  • Interact Club (through local Rotary)
  • International Thespian Society
  • Junior Classical League
  • Literary Magazine
  • Math Club
  • Mock Trial
  • Model UN
  • National Honor Society
  • National Junior Honor Society
  • National Art Honor Society
  • National Science Honor Society
  • Outdoor Club
  • Science Olympiad
  • Student Senate
  • Theater Club
  • Youth & Government

Clubs meet either during school hours or before or after school. Clubs are open to students in third grade and higher.

National Honor Society

Membership in The National Honor Society is “a privilege bestowed on students that display scholarship, leadership, service, and character to their school and community." Qualified students will be “tapped" and invited to join the NHS every year, with induction ceremonies generally during the spring and fall semesters.

Student Advisory

Our faculty offers a weekly advisory period with time set aside to provide students in the Middle and Upper Schools guidance for academic and college preparation.

Our faculty advisors serve as positive adult mentors, encouraging our students to take the next step in academia, sports, and their passions. They are sympathetic ears for students to talk about the stresses of academics or worries about college in a safe, supportive space.

Each faculty advisor leads 5-10 students in the same grade-level as an “Advisory Team.” Each team works together as a group to:

  • Maximize the Epiphany experience
  • Explore different topics
  • Perform community service projects
  • Celebrate one another’s achievements
  • Support one another through setbacks

Advisory Teams compete in a fun and positive way to win Advisory Championship Challenge (ACC) points. ACC points are awarded to students for:

  • Achieving good grades
  • Logging community service hours
  • Participating in co-curriculars
  • Bringing in Box Tops for Education
  • Selling tickets to the fund-raising gala and auction

The team with the most ACC points wins the championship prize, which is announced on the school-wide field trip to Camp Seafarer. The winning advisory team also receives a special activity at camp, championship t-shirts, and their photograph hung on the wall at the school.

Evenings at the School

In the evenings, students frequently have a chance to visit with friends—and make new ones—outside the classroom in informal co-curricular activities we call “Evenings at the School.”

The administration carefully programs events year-round that appeal to all students, like:

  • Dances
  • Movie Nights
  • Musical Shows
  • Theater Productions
  • Talent Shows
  • International Nights
  • Sporting Events
  • Academic Presentations

These fun evening activities allow every student to feel like a member of the Epiphany community—all in a supervised, safe environment. This connection between faculty, volunteers, and students is one of the many aspects that make The Epiphany School of Global Studies the uniquely close-knit environment that it is—a part of the community that never really closes!

Student Ambassadors

Our student ambassadors are dedicated to the positive promotion of The Epiphany School of Global Studies. They work on a volunteer basis to serve as liaisons between our school community and prospective students and families.
